to realize that this is our katrina. >> the obama administration responded to complaints that fema was late on the scene and amounted the deputy administrator will be there tomorrow and fema wants everyone who needs assistance to call. 1- 800-621-fema or disasterassistance.gov. >>> president obama was back on the campaign trail in wisconsin, but still focused on storm recovery back east. the trail. >> in new jersey yesterday and saw the devastation and you really get a sense of how difficult this is going to be for a lot of people. but you know, we've been inspired these past few days. because when disaster strikes, we see america at its best. the consumer in these times all seem to melt away. there are no democrats or republicans during the storm. just fellow americans. >> his response to the storm has earned him big praise. 78% approve of how he's dealt with the hurricane. images and headlines like this have helped, too, featuring chris christie of new jersey on a bipartisan storm damage tour together from wednesday. but not everyone's a fan of the federal agencies that handle disasters l
of the first accomplishments of the obama administration was the development and the dissemination of the vaccine for that new virus that popped up, h1n1. it killed the group in between and that was an unbelievable accomplishment and the democrats never brag about it. >> bill: i forgot about that. but there are many, many, many roles where things -- look at our federal interstate highway system, right? look at the air traffic air-traffic controller system. there are some things -- look at the defense of our country. but it is not just the military. there's some things -- look at our transportation system that government does better, where the role of government is necessary to bring all of us together because what is a government? the government is just us working together to solve problems and to create a better america. so this anti-government rhetoric from paul ryan, from the tea party, hating government and from mitt romney, that's what he's all about. hurricane sandy proves that is dangerous. not just wrong. da
the election. >> turn over the evidence. they are increasing calls for the obama administration they are outraged they are staying quiet. listen to this. >> very good at touting and giving all of the details like when they got bin laden. but now we know there were tapes recordings inside the consulate during this fight and they have gotten -- they came when the fbi got in and quote top secret. >> republicans are politicizing the issue. >> is this tearrism 101. a new york university professor having students to plot a terror attack. professor helen maris asking students to write up 15 pages describing how they would do it and what the aftermath would be. she is a former navy criminal investigator defends the class saying it prepares students for a career in intelligence. some police officers are calling it an insult to those who died on 9-11. shocking details about the meningitis outbreak. health officials waited 6 days before they noted the public. they have back pain shots linked to the infections. 25 people died in the outbreak including three from the state of indiana. 344 pe
at home. i think the obama administration is stonewalling to congress, and misleading the american people. i've written almost a dozen, half a dozen letters to the administration and haven't heard one word back. >> greta: so you think that a conversation with the due knee n authorities will give us access to the man in custody? >> i'm going to find out. i'm shocked that they're not giving us access. they've worked very well with the cia. i'm the ranking republican on our foreign aid subcommittee on appropriations, you know. we're in charge of the money. yes, i'm going to ask the tunisians why can't we have access to this person that we believe was involved in the attack on our consulate. you know, this storm is a terrible thing for america, and i appreciate what president obama is doing to try to help people, but i wish he would give some attention to benghazi, libya when it would have mattered. there was an al-qaeda storm brewing for months. our consulate was attacked in april, attacked again in june. the british ambassador was attacked in june. the british withdrew. the red cross withdr
. they believe the obama administration isn't telling the truth about what happened. the administration has rejected a claim that it failed to swiftly send help. >> federal officials say employees at the massachusetts pharmacy tied to the meningitis outbreak knew that there was contamination but didn't investigate or correct the problem. the fda went through the  compounding center's records and found four dozen reports of potential contamination stretching back to january. steriod injections made by the pharmacy have been tied to the outbreak. 25 people have died and more than 300 have gotten sick. >>> two more chip munks have tested positive for the plague. 38 so far and three squirrels have tested positive. the first case of was found earlier this month, health officials are telling visitors to use caution while at tahoe area parks. rangers are also posting signs in the affected areas. >> city group has fired two analysts for leaking research on facebook before it's ipo. a security regulator in massachusetts said the city broke the law by sending research to tech crunch.com before fa
's taking so long? >> remember, the obama administration testified in a hearing that we had that they were watching this or witnessing this virtually in real time. we have survivors that were there on the scene. they know exactly what happened. when i went to libya and i visited with the people there at our embassy in tripoli, there was no doubt in their minds what had happened. there was no mention of the video. there was no mention of a mob. but they know exactly what happened, plus supposedly according to press reports, we had drones in the air. so i think we do know what happened. we have four dead americans and we have an administration that is not being held accountable. it's been mislieding the public and they're not releasing the video and audio we though that they have. >> steve: why aren't they being held accountable? i know a couple days ago, the president sat down for a local tv interview with a guy from kusa out in denver and a couple of times he said, were they denied requests for help? we're talking about the c.i.a. guys who said, we want to go in and help those guys and app
it overreads -- i mean, look, there's no question that the obama administration is both trying to do right by policy and governance and by politics the week out from an election. we've heard you guys on the show the last couple days where this is a place where good government rhymes with good politics. it's not trying to elbow its way into new york at the statue of liberty. they're saying hey, you guys want us to come? we'll be there. governor christie thinks it's good for his state. he doesn't want a political backdrop either. but he wants to get help for the people of his state. mayor bloomberg has been obviously disappointed with obama, but also disagreed with romney on almost everything and has been public on both fronts. i think mayor bloomberg is focused, as jim suggested, on trying to get the city lit up and online and maybe it's more of a pain to have the president logistically than anything else. >> that may be true. >> i think you muddied things up. >> really? >> i'm not sure that people that are watching -- >> i've muddied things up. >> -- don't think that i believe the presiden
want a real recovery, you have to elect him president. president obama and obama administration saying it is proof the economy is recovering, don't change now essentially their message. >> chuck, thank you very much. tom brokaw nbc news special correspondent. good to see you. >> good to be here. >> you have been covering elections a long time. you hear people talk about possible october surprise. could sandy be october surprise? >> we had a series, the president not showing up for the first debate, benghazi, this surprise, the storm larger than anybody thought it might be two weeks ago, three weeks ago. >> how will it impact the race though? >> i don't know. it is hard to say. i think that the endorsement by mayor bloomberg may not move the needle, for example, in colorado. in ohio and places they're trying to get white men, they can say look, this guy has the endorsement of the mayor of new york city. >> even though it wasn't a warm hug. >> wasn't a warm hug but tough on romney about not being the guy he was when governor of massachusetts. >> want to go back to sandy a second. greates
a complex one. the two driving forces of growth here play into the messages of both campaigns. mr. obama points to his administration's auto rescue for saving jobs. and romney emphasizes the need for domestic energy production as an economic engine for the area. >> we've had a lot of positive economic news over the last couple of months. and so the question is, is it too close to the election to really make an impact on people's votes? or are people still kind of weighing the economic realities of the country and of the state. >> reporter: the city of lord's town is home to a sprawling general motors factory, the area's largest employer. once on the verge of collapse, it's become a national symbol of the federal bailout of the auto industry and a center piece of mr. obama's campaign. former president bill clinton who will visit ohio next week with the president pointed to the plant's success as this summer's democratic party conventions in charlotte. >> the auto industry restructuring worked. it saved-- it saved more than a million jobs, and not just at gm, chrysler and their dealerships
's to president obama's benefit. not only does its make his administration look competent but it makes the case for a government role, the role of government has been one of the fundamental debates between these two candidates. if the federal response does not look so competent we've seen how devastating that can be for incumbent presidents. we saw that with katrina, for instance, and george w. bush. >> woodruff: dan, what about a role for governor romney at a time like this? >> well, it's minimal at this point. i mean he really has to remain essentially invisible. he can't look like he's trying to do anything to exploit the politics of the moment. so in a sense there's more potential up side for president obama, but as susan said more potential down side for governor romney i think it is a matter of just kind of waiting and watching and then deciding at what point he can go back out. i mean one of the issues is, does this short circuit kind of the surge of energy that we've seen around the romney campaign? there's no question that there is more energy out there in the republican base and at ev
week about ohio. without autos, without auto manufacturing, it would be very hard to see how the obama team can continue to have excitement and emotional momentum on their side in ohio. it could very well be that the car situation and the help that this administration provided could be the stonewall. however, you look at this momentum, and mike, you follow campaigns. you follow political efforts. and when you have this kind of momentum heading into the final week, it's got to be a good feeling for the romney campaign as they look at the last eight days of where they are. >> you know, usually in campaigns, joe, you know this better than any of us sitting here because you've been on the ballot. you get an indication four, five days out that something has tipped within one campaign or another. and it's set in motion. and so you sort of know who the winner will be. that's not the case this year. i fall back on something that you keep hearing repeatedly when you're out there talking with people, that the president of the united states somehow -- well, we know how -- did himself irreparable
